About Our Yoga Classes

Establishing a regular yoga practice can have significant mind and body benefits that help us feel balanced and strong. A regular and diverse yoga practice can build strength, muscle tone, flexibility, aerobic fitness, and balance - all areas that are critical to maintaining our functioning as we age. Additionally, yoga has the ability to reduce chronic pain and inflammation. In terms of its mental benefits, yoga has also been shown to improve our cognitive abilities while reducing stress, anxiety, and even depression.

Gentle Yoga is a guided practice that incorporates movement, breath work, and meditation. Students will be led through a calming meditative practice and gentle, restorative movements to support their overall health and well-being. 

Absolutely no experience is necessary for this yoga class, and you do not need to be able-bodied. Please just come with an open mind. You will be guided the entire way through the practice and plenty of modifications will be given.

You will be given permission to move in a way that feels best for you but with certain cues given for physical safety. This yoga practice is a way for you to connect to the present moment and bring a feeling of peace and ease into your daily life.
